    Thanks for the info! How do you feel regarding the width of the leg opening? Is it too large? Is there any taper? I admittedly don't work my legs as hard as I should when lifting, so they lean more towards thin than muscular.

      Wife-to-be keeps telling me to relax and just run with the shorts-and-T-shirt look. Trouble is, I don't like the look on me. It seems just TOO casual for my taste. I mean I don't mind wearing it around the house when I'm in what I call comfy clothes. Or if I'm doing work outside on my bike, etc. But if I'm heading out to get groceries, or to the pub, etc. I like to put on the OCBD and roll up the sleeves.

      What are people's thoughts around T-shirt & shorts look? Anyone sporting this look this summer? Or are you reaching for a polo as a compromise? Or maybe something else entirely?
      I don't wear t-shirts, other than to sleep in, to exercise in, or to do yard work in. I wear polos a lot in the summer, though. Actually, just ordered a BR Luxe-Touch polo a few minutes ago.

      Incidentally, why OCBDs rather than a more summery dress-casual shirt? For example, why not a linen or cotton/linen blend? I find those more breathable. In 2017, I've restocked my OCBD collection and now have them in white and light blue (from BR) and green and light purple (from JCF). But I regard them mostly as three-season shirts because they're so heavy. The JCF ones in particular.

        From my recollection the shorts are fine for my legs regarding the leg opening. I don't think they ride up at all and I don't think there is any taper. If I remember I'll give the shorts a closer look when I'm wearing them next.

          Thank you sir. I actually had the opportunity to swing by Target yesterday evening, and I quite liked the shorts for the price (the sale price). Compared to the JCF 9" Broken-In Gramercy variety, they are a lighter weight material and do have a slight taper (or they so appeared). The Club Shorts fit a little better around the seat area, but I give the nod to the JCF shorts for quality and possible longevity, mainly due to the heavier materiel and slightly better construction. That is likely moot, though, as the broken-in variety uses a heavier chino; the "lightweight" Gramercy would have made a better comparison but I do not own a pair.
